The permission requirements proposed in the model apply to exporters of regulated commodities. Infrequent exporters may be exempt from licensing. For exporters with a licence and preventive control plan, some example strategies can be found in Annex B, Element 1, sub-element 1.4.

Commodities exported from Canada must meet all of the importing country's requirements, including obtaining all required documents.

7.1 Preventive control plans

An exporter's preventive control plan would require export controls to address any foreign regulatory requirements (for example, product identification requirements).

7.2 Inspection

The inspection approach in Section 5 would be used to verify the effectiveness of the exporter's preventive control plan.

7.3 Issuance of export certificates

The model proposes that export certificates be issued based on the exporter's conformance with his or her preventive control plan, and that the certificates could be issued without further lot-by-lot product inspection. This approach would only be used if it were accepted by the importing country. The CFIA would continue to negotiate with its trading partners to promote this concept. If required by the foreign country, the CFIA could conduct commodity inspection and certification of lots to be exported.

If notified by an exporter that a non-compliant commodity had been exported, the CFIA would take appropriate steps to monitor the recovery and control of the non-compliant commodity. Trading partners would be alerted to this non-compliance using established protocols. The exporter would have to adjust his or her preventive controls to address this non-compliance.
